Kathy. condolences and prayers for you, your brother, and all the family.
Uncle John was a wonderful man. My dad always talked about him skipping two grades in school, and being elected to the school board at age sixteen! He had a lot of talent in many areas. He built a fine house with his own hands, and was always kindly to everyone. He will be missed! So sorry for this loss.
I share in the loss of John Loveridge with the entire Loveridge family. Sylvia, I know you must feel so sad and alone. I was very blessed to be in Tucson, Arizona when you and John stopped by. John led a very full life, but it is always a shock when a life ends. John’s spirit never dies. He lives on in all our memories!
Hi Sylvia, George, Kathy, Dick,

Beautiful service. We are sorry we could not make the trip from Arkansas. We were blessed to have John as our brother-in-law. We always enjoyed visiting with you all.

Dear Kathy and George,
I have enjoyed the friendship of your mother and dad through High School, church and later.
I hope this message is comforting:

though they be on the other side of the
So those we love may pass beyond the
reach of hands, but not outside the heart.
Thinking of you with sympathy.
My condolences. May God’s grace be upon you now and in the future.
